Aliens Have Gone Steampunk!

Caught this in my RSS reader the other day and have been endlessly fascinated by it ever since. This was actually reported by The Witchita Eagle in Kansas. Apparently an amateur shutter bug in the area caught this on his camera the other day.

It flew fast like a jet, made a whirling sound and left an odd glow.

That's how an amateur photographer described a flying machine he spotted in the skies near Rose Hill on Friday. The UFO world is now paying attention to his photograph.

Horror Headlines: Monday February 16th, 2009

Daniel Myrick, co-director of the original "Blair Witch Project" is now actively developing the "Blair Witch" prequel that he's been talking about for years, with a new producer. He says he's currently looking at locations and working on the script, even though Lions Gate has yet to agree to do it. LG ended up with the rights after the firesale that resulted from Artisan's folding some years back. The name suspiciously missing from this story is Eduardo Sanchez, the other director of the original who in my opinion has had the much more impressive filmography since. Without him, my interest in this project pretty much drops to 0.

Somebody spent an awful lot of time spreading a rumor late last week that Lindsay Lohan was starring in Platinum Dune's "Nightmre on Elm St." remake. Fortunately it's not true, but it does make for some good visuals, no?

I'm not a werewolf fan by any means, but combine a werewolf story with "Jurassic Park" and do it "B" movie style, and that's something I could get excited for.

Diablo Cody is looking to adapt the book "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament, which based on the description is just about as "clever" and meta as you can imagine. I just heard a lot of audible groans, and they weren't coming from zombies.

Finally, about a month away from release and we have the official site for "Last House on the Left". It never ceases to amaze me the kind of depraved stuff that Hollywood can gussy up and make suitable for the mainstream. The question remains, will there be pants-peeing? Methinks no.

Malcom MacDowell has officially signed on for "H2". After seeing "Friday the 13th" this weekend, I'm taking a temporary moratorium on making fun of the "Halloween" remake. I may think Zombie was misguided, but now I see that he truly does love Michael Myers, and that counts for something. So, let's be friends, Rob Zombie fans.

In Real People News: 

Someone has stolen the Dutch government's porn stash! No need to cancel your vacation plans, their other "stash" remains untouched. And even if it were, you could always borrow some from Jason. (sorry folks, expect those jokes to continue for a while)

Reports are that Michael Jackson is infected with a flesh-eating super bug. Sweet holy Christ, and you thought he couldn't get any scarier looking. He's on an intravenous drip trying to fight it off, but if it worsens it may begin to "kill skin". Here's an artist's rendering.

You ever notice how there are people who fail over and over to kill themselves, and yet on any given day there's a jackass somewhere who kills himself by accident? That must make those people even more depressed! For added comedic value, this guy was actually committing "fake" suicide, and failed at that. There's a lot going on in this story, clearly.

Two nuclear submarines collided in the Atlantic recently, one British and one French. Unfortunately, neither was carrying peanut butter and/or chocolate.

On this day in history: 

1923: Lord Carnarvon opens King Tut's tomb, revealing one of the most well-preserved treasures from the ancient world. Unconfirmed reports claim 13 of the 20 explorers died mysterious deaths, although that story has never been proven true.

Heavy Metal Band Names Chart

If you need a name for your metal band, this chart will help ensure that your name reaches appropriate levels of metalocity. The awesome spiky font is entirely up to you.

Also, can any biblical scholars out there help me out- where exactly in the Book of Revelations does "Mexican Santa" appear?

With that glorious work respite President's Day now in our rear-view mirrors, it's time to assess the damage done by Jason Voorhees at the box office.
